Do you know if it is Open Source software that we could contribute to?
We've done some research and proof of concept with Meilisearch and ScraPy which crawls the public, indexable fediverse and indexes it in a blazing fast, Open Source search platform. But helping existing software is always better, IMO!
This means I won't be contributing.
First, because there is no means to contribute to a closed-source project. Second, because I don't want to divert time and effort into a proprietary project
And thirdly, a "job candidate search" needs special settings & additions to cover the specific use-case.
And to achieve that, open source and -licence is a requirement.
SearchX is a metasearch engine. Which means, is does not have its own crawler, but is a "proxy" to existing engines. But if you happen to know if of engines it uses has a good index of fediverse profiles, it could work.
We've made some headway with ScraPy which then imports into Meilisearch. It appears that making a fediverse crawler and search doable in little time (weeks, or days). Open Source, off course.
